Book Lover


Writing: I came up with an idea for Dakmir this evening that is actually worthy of a novel, instead of the smaller ideas I've been working with up until now. It will require the creation of a third culture.

I've been working on Dakmir over the weekend, but it was mainly minor worldbuilding stuff, with nothing new to add to the story.

Books: I bought a copy of One Night with the King over the weekend. I hate this custom of renaming novels after the movies made based on them. I will eventually go to Amazon and buy a copy of Hadassah, the proper novel, but I have to admit, I did want one with the pretty pictures. (g) The book is by Tommy Tenney.

NaNoWriMo: I am thinking of working on Dakmir for Nanowrimo this year. I think I will not attempt to meet the 50,000-word goal. But I will work on concentrated, focused writing, the best writing I can do, to get the basic story down. I don't think I will ever work toward the 50,000 words in a month goal again. My focus is on quality, now. 'No plot, no problem' doesn't cut it. That just wastes my time. Preparation must come first.

    indescribable I must be insane.

LJ Time-Stamp: Hurray! My time-stammp is fixed!

Health: As the vision clouding has for the most part gone away, I will not be undergoing laser surgery in the near future. No real need to, right now.

Weather: Much nicer today than it was yesterday. It was nice to see the sun. :)

Writing: I've officially signed up to do NaNoWriMo this year, though, as I said before, I won't be aiming for the goal of 50,000 words in a month. Instead, I'm aiming for the best story I can write.

I have a Dakmir plot bunny that's jumping around in my head, but I don't want to use it. Very frustrating.

Meme: Nabbed from jecklar:
